Almost three years ago, the @waverleygardenclub invited me to visit them. After two years of lockdowns, it was great to finally be able to do that.
Kudos to these two amazing women, who celebrated 50 years of membership. FIFTY!! That’s longer than I’ve been alive - what a commitment!

Delighted to join @cr.paterson & @mattfregonmp for the opening of the first art exhibition since lockdown at The Track Gallery
The exhibition, The Collective, by artists Rishu Kapoor and Pratibha Madan, is free to visit. Well worth the trip!

Over the past 18 months, more than anything, we’ve missed social connections. And it’s fair to say we might have previously taken them for granted. Not anymore.
Great to catch up with my good friend @crstevestaikos, Mayor of Kingston, to celebrate Christmas Sicilian style.
Thank you to Circolo Pensionati Italiani di Oakleigh and Clayton for a lovely lunch and dance extravaganza!

Great night out with Deputy Mayor Tina Samardzija and Cr Nicky Luo celebrating cultural singing, dance and artistic works.

Happy 8th wedding anniversary to this little spunk (the one on the left). Where has the time gone?
My rock 🤘 ...
I'll just leave this here....... ...
Excited to join the inaugural group of students for the Integrated Practical Placement (IPP) at their graduation ceremony last week.
The placement program was the first of its kind in Australia; a collaboration between @activemonash, @holmesglen and @wise_employment to help school leaves and young people with a disability gain qualifications and critical work experience in the sport, recreation and leisure sector.
It’s been an incredibly hard year for them to be studying due to the continuous lockdowns, but they’ve found a way through and should be extremely proud of their resilience, passion and persistence.
We’re already started planning for next year’s program. If you know someone who may be suited, reach out!

This is why I love our community; how unbelievable is this?
After what we've all been through over the past two years, simple acts of generosity like this just warm your heart.
Well done Vikkie!
My name is Vikkie (AKA Mrs Claus 🤣🤣) and every year we decorate the outside of our house with Christmas lights. This year we thought we would do something special and added a North Pole letterbox to bring some joy to the local kids. There is a note on the letterbox advising kids that Santa will be writing back to every letter and wish list that is posted in this letterbox. We will then select three random children and post them a gift from their wish list. If you are walking past or driving past surprise the kids with the letterbox and have them send a letter to Santa and await his special reply.
Also if any local businesses would like to get involved and send a gift from one of the letters please PM me.
10 ILLUKA CRESCENT, Mount Waverley ...
** SNEAK PEEK - FIRST CHILD & FAMILY HUB **
One of my main priorities when I became Mayor in 2019 was to increase funding to support young families.
Fast forward two years, and I was incredibly excited to join @danielandrewsmp and @tina.samardzija for a tour of the newly constructed $4.5M Wellington Child and Family Hub in Mulgrave ($1M provided by the State Government)
The centre offers two kindergarten rooms, two maternal and child health consulting rooms, two consulting rooms for specialists and a community playgroup room, all in a state-of-the-art facility.
We're planning our next Child and Family hub in Pinewood right now, with one in Oakleigh South to follow!

Incredibly excited to be back meeting face to face with many of the small businesses around Monash at this mornings @monashbusinessawards breakfast.
Entertaining panel discussion with @blue_sky_services and @somblinds hearing some of their stories from startup to award winning businesses.

Donna hates Pizza, so when she’s out, it’s our default go-to option. Great afternoon at Davies Reserve, Oakleigh South. Thanks to @petrinopizza in Huntingdale for sorting us out.

Without a doubt, one of the toughest things to do as a Mayor is to be grilled by primary school students on all things Council.
No easy questions today as students from Clayton North Primary asked the tough questions about homelessness, smoking, discrimination and sustainability.
If today’s session was anything to go by, our future is in good hands!

Despite what a very loud, yet overwhelming minority might think (only 7% haven’t had a shot), vaccination is our only way out.
The alternative is continuous lockdowns and widespread economic devastation (more than we’ve had already).
But vaccination is more than that.
It’s about protecting yourself, your children, your parents, your partner, your loved ones. And it’s about protecting mine. And those of everyone in our community.
Because I believe in a country where we all care about other people. I believe in a country where the greater good trumps all else. I believe in a country where innocent people aren’t needlessly dying from preventable diseases.
This is simply a matter of life and death. Science allows us to avoid a repeat of the Black Death where almost half of the entire population of Europe was wiped out.
If you’re not vaccinated, book your appointment TODAY!

** BREAKING **
Almost all restrictions will be lifted at midnight tonight for vaccinated persons.

Excited to finally be back at @cote_terra today. They’ve done some renovations during lockdown and the place looks fabulous. I forgot how good their wagyu burgers are as well 😋
